Really – eating some things just taken out of the ground ?

Avoid doing it at all cost…even carrots need a

Wash before you start eating them

Reality is – not cooking them – keeps the nutrients

And also the Vitamins and Minerals

While they might taste nicer cooked – they’re better this way

Root Vegetables, need a little preparation

And fruit from the tree can just be picked while ripe

While meat and fish – need some attention from the chef

Trickery

Food, Poetry

In response to Fandango’s one word challenge

You knew your nephew wouldn’t eat his greens

every mealtime saw a trip to the bin

but appreciating his happy sweet tooth

you snook something into pudding unseen

and eating with the custard you did grin

as he ate up his carrots with a great big smile

hidden in the sponge cake with sultanas between

and wouldn’t complain about veg – for a while

a foodie acrostic, by inky

Carefully crafted by cooks of the highest order

A combination of the finest root vegetables , stock and seasoning

Rotating slowly in a silver pan until the

Root veg is just right, you can eat it as it is

Or stick a blender in the pan to make it nice and smooth

To pour into a serving turrine

Bubble and Squeak

Christmas, Food, Poetry

Salford, 29th December 2017

I knew it was coming – the creation of a masterpiece.

something from the remains of the Christmas feast – to warm everybody up

chef using concoctions to heighten the flavour of the dish

in first went the potatoes (roast and boiled), and then the onion – accompanied by a drop of oil.

then went the parnsip, turnip and swede.  followed by the carrots

the meat from the leftovers cubed and joined in the heat by a stock cube

and as you listened to the pan – the contents started to bubble

half way there – and with the turn of the veg – it started to speak

squeaking away with a sizzle

Chicken Soup (Panacea)

Acrostic, Food, Health

Perhaps you say, it could have magical properties

as the recipe has been passed down the generations for years

notably, it reaches parts your chemists cold cures dont

and it’s tasty to the person that’s eating it

changes to little things like seasonings, are expected through time but

everybody knows the core of chicken, onion and carrot

and mum and dad know – they’ll have empty bowls and seconds asked for

Now fellow wordpressors might have seen this one before, but as its cees photochallenge, i thought i’d put it on here – not for the wonderful bridge (that’s the wrong letter folks!!!) but for those fluffy white marshmallow clouds , over looking the quayside at Salford, attached to the Manchester ship Canal.

Last but not least, here’s a close up of a cornflower – i like this one because of the colour!

Todays ensemble : Cabbage, Onions (Red and White), Tomato and Carrot

Brain and Spinal Injury Centre, Salford

17th February 2017

…Following last weeks close up food shots, we continued the theme with a heap of vegetables to produce some wonderful still life artwork.  The vegetables were set on a Square slate and against a marble backdrop

No Auto today!  each picture was taken manually – with me setting up angles and close ups of the food stuffs.

Camera used was my able Bridge camera : Sony DSC H-300 with zoom.  Great camera with some wonderful zoom functions.

Unseen

The fussy eater
was caught off guard
by an addition of vegetables
to his favourite pudding

Carrots remained buried
under a mountain of sponge
and mum just smiled
as the kids munched away

What was that yummy stuff
under the sultanas and lashings of custard?
Mother knows what it was
but she’s not telling….

Empty plates all round,

Not a vegetable to be found

And fussy eater wont know

as for another piece he does go….
